The Academy nominated two clearly supporting performances...
My ranking:
1.Leigh-no doubt

2.Wyman-great underrated performance

3.Winters-a bit limited,but still impressive performance in one of my all time favorite movies

4.Hepburn-not fan of her here

5.Parker-one big nothing

Vivien will 200% surely win.

Vivien will win, no doubt about it.

I guess Winters could be second, based on the performance alone. Excited to hear your thoughts about her and Parker. Leading or supporting?

Vivien for the number one in the all time ranking!!!!!!! Perfect performance, the best of all time!!!
Winters should be second and Parker should be last for doing absolutely nothing! No idea about Wyman and Hepburn was good but not as amazing as always.

I thought Parker was absolutely brillant, with a beautiful "old fashion" acting in her big scene. I know somes hate that but it works very well for me. She really has a powerful face for that type of emotional performance.

But she is, actually, supporting for me, much more than Winters.

And Vivien Leigh wins.....

It's Obvious!

No performance in this category was even close in comparison.

Vivien Leigh's win for "A Streetcar Named Desire" was probably the best win.
